  • ½ cup sunflower seeds
  • ½ cup Pepitas
  • 1 cup cashew nuts
  • 1 cup macadamia nuts

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (or other liquid sweetener (rice malt syrup, coconut syrup, honey))

  • ¾ cup coconut flakes
  • ⅓ cup goji berries
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed or chia seeds
  1. Preheat the oven to 150°C.

  3. Mix the nuts and seeds together in a bowl. Pour over the liquid ingredients and mix well.
